Fun J.Crew Prints

For years J.Crew and Lands End have been my go to shops for preppy staples.  One of the things that I appreciate J.Crew for, which Lands End has always been shy about, is a touch of quirk.  Sometimes you may find the one token cute item like the sailboat skirt I bought a couple of years ago, but for the most part they barely dip a tow into the whimsy pond.  I understand that they are there to supply the basics and I do appreciate the fact that they offer a variety of colors, including pink. 
With that said I hope that J.Crew continues bringing the fun prints.  I'm disappointed that I missed out on the 50's style apple skirt they did last year.  I waited too long for a better sale and by then, it was sold out.  They once had a library skirt which had pictures of books that I again wish I had bought. 
I have found that consignment shops are the best place to find the treasures of stores past.  Last year I was fortunate to find this cute J.Crew skirt for under $20. 

Tee shirt:  Isaac Mizrahi Essentials Crew Neck Tee in Coral Rouge at QVC.  I prefer XS instead of XXS.
Necklace: Old Isaac Mizrahi candy style
Skirt: Old J.Crew
Shoes: Old Talbots leather Espadrilles.  This years Talbots Espadrille is the Palma Cotton Canvas Flat.
